We had a work party at the club today.Place needed a little TLC. I asked the care taker if he had any heavy 30 cal molds.He gave me a bucket full of kerosene with over a dozen molds soaking in it.!!!! I will have to replace some of the wood handles and still need to free up the handle to mold joint on some of the molds. They all open and close okay,I think? If I have to remove the handles from the mold do I have to drill them out? May be a soaking in Kroil just over the blocks and NOT soaking the wood ?
